Mrs Asiata Onikoyi-Laguda's story (see link below) should inspire and encourage persons living with Sickle Cell Disease (SCD). Don't live your lives with the 'life expectancy' limitations or mentality because it would destroy you. You can live above what medical science has projected for you but if you keep holding on to life expectancy projections, like cowards, you will die many times before your death. Holding on to the some projections that you will die in your 30s or 40s stops you from living out your dreams and puts you into a state of victim mentality. Like the Devil, it is intended to steal your happiness, kill your dreams and even kill you literally, and it will destroy your life. You have a whole lot to achieve and make a difference in society. Take those little but steady steps and you will be amazed at how far you would go. You are all talented and intelligent people and that is for a reason. Please say NO to life expectancy. #NoToLifeExpectancy
